Go, psychology man! Question: how are you defining "art?" Is it art if it's cheesy or shopworn? Is it art if I think it is art? So if subjects feel that they are experiencing art, that's good, right? If I think the Mona Lisa is just a smirking barmaid, then I won't be having an esthetic experience with her. Keep us posted.

Does artistic experience affect the mental processes used when viewing visual art?

Hi John. Our contribution is half Gladys, half me. My notion is that art is an intellectual source of "qi," which is that happy energy that binds us to the world. Qi is scattered everywhere, and our senses, and also our imagination and intuitions, are the receptors that activate it.
